Herceg Novi Korcula Famous wines and folklore Rich folk traditions seem to spill out of every doorway in the marble strewn paradise of Korcula Island. Whispers of a smaller Dubrovnik seem to tumble through the streets especially as you glance up at the impressive architecture and the meander through winding medieval streets. Korcula is renowned for its fabulous wines so be sure to crush a cup or two in the stunning harbor front bars before a final sunset swim and dinner on deck. Korcula Trojir UNESCO treasures A UNESCO wonderland is waiting to greet you with its labyrinth of stone streets, its collection of period buildings covering everything from renaissance romance to baroque beauty and Venetian flair, and its pretty promenade lined with gleaming white yachts.

  1. Yes, they are indeed great ports of call. Came back from a cruise to Mexico and it didn’t look like that. Great pictures and one day I will visit.

  2. Hi Carl,

    I notice you didn’t include Hvar which is surprising! I can also highly recommend Piran in Slovenia. Either way the Adriatic is a truly fantastic cruising ground for superyachts and somewhere I personally adore.

    Kind regards,
